Thanks a lot indeed ...but sometimes i am sometimes a power user and use ethernet, mhl and usb 3.0 over the micro usb 3.0 of the Note pro tablet.
I also like to have multiwindow working so i will try this version or i will just root my tablet to give a little more features pack and be done with it.

How to backup properly?

Hello everybody.
I'm still running the stock rom on my P905.
Can anybody tell me which is the best release of TWRP I should flash?
And then, which is the best way to do a rom backup (Nandbackup, which partitions, the sequence of actions...) in order to restore, in a second time, the tablet with all the app and all data, without the need of reinstalling anything.
In theory I know how to do, but I think your experience is much more important.
Thank you.

Hi Valera,

I'm coming from Germany and want to say THANK YOU!! for all the good work on this ROM!
I struggled around for over a year with this poor Stock-Lollipop-ROM (Shame on Samsung). GSM works when the sun was shining or when it was raining...or it fails all the time! :silly:
With Valera's Marshmallow-ROM GSM works right OOTB! :highfive:
...and to be honest: All this CM- and Lineage-OS-ROMs are not really an alternative, because of the lack of native S-Pen-support!
Sooooo....keep up the good work....and again: Many, many thanks!

Greetz

@velera1978 This rom is almost perfect already! You have done a great job! Once you get the front Camera and microphone working it will be perfect besides what you already mentioned. I will send you another bug report as soon as my apps finish downloading thank you so much again!

I have two more questions, if anyone will be able to help:
1. I found defaul weather widget good enough, but i can't move it to screen edge (horizontal), it have invisible borders far from edge. Is it possible to fix somehow?
2. If i encrypt device - will be still possible to install new ROM versions later? Never encrypt in past, have zero expirience with it...
3. Few days ago, while i was at 5.0.2 stock ROM, my Skype running OK, but at current ROM i install it, login into my account and all my contacts become not authorized (at PC everything is fine). I google it, looks like it can be a Skype internal problem, but last time at stock ROM everything was fine, so just wondering, maybe anyone know something...

Thank you!

Wich Version of rom did you installed?

1. I don't have any bazzels/borders. Did you tried dpi changer because it sounds like a dpi problem and stock inbuild dpi changer is buggy at least on v4 for me.( big is small and small is big but if you change once you won't be able to set the default dpi so everything appears too small or too big)

2. Feel free to try to encrypt the device to test this feature but remember to backup before doing anything cause you might be not able to access the tab anymore once you have encrypted it and if you run with this into trouble.

3. That one sounds like a sync problem of I understand you correctly. A possible fix is to clear cache and app data maybe Skype account too and set it up from scratch.
I think factory reset would do this job ,too.

Does your Sim/Data work with this Rom? If you didn't test. Could you do one?


Best regards

1. Other widgets are freely move at whole screen, only built-in weather widget can't get closer to edge.

2. Not too promising :) if anything goes wrong i will able to full wipe and install again, right? i will not brick my device?

3. Could you please tell me how to clear cache and app data? Wipe in recovery?

No, i did not test SIM with latest build.

1. Then i don't know i am in Build 4 and my Widget Looks awesome

2. I really don't know. I mean i think you should be able to wipe After all. I don't think it would Brick your device but maybe you won't be able to decyrpt it back again. Personally i wouldn't try because i don't need another code to unlock my tab:)

3.Settings/Apps / App / Storage / clear Cache/data.
Or wipe all in Recovery.

Could you Insert a Sim quickly and tell of you get sim/data Working?

    I'm not responsible for any damage to your device of any sort.
    By flashing this you take responsibility of anything that happens.
    Process at your own risk!


    This firmware was developed for the p905. It doesn't apply to the p905v at this time because it's bootloader locked and a custom recovery isn't possible.

    If you want to check firmware - please make backup. Better to store all partitions, at least efs and may be modem.

    This port based on the "QS_N7_Port_v2.2" port for samsung note 3, big thanks for @qaraqumus
    This is first preview version, a lot of problem here, it need to clean-up. Some applications has only vertical, because this is port from phone.

    The point of this thread and the test port to see if we need any port, or enough lineage? On the one hand lineage easier to control, it's building from source. On the other hand - the stock and all its features

    Instructions
    1. Install custom recovery
    2. Download the zip - firmware
    3. Backup all partitions (it least efs) and store somewhere - it need to do - because you can loose imei
    4. Full wipe all
    5. Flash firmware

    First boot will be very long (about 10 minutes). Be patient. :)

    Work
    Almost all work: calls, mobile data, wifi, bluetooth, sound, vibra, sdcard, mtp, s-pen, gps

    Known Issues
    - microphone in skype
    - phone app vertical only (need replace phone\contacts to tablet version)
    - crash in the contacts
    - problems with the keyboard in the floating\split views

    Need check
    - wi-fi calling - is it possible?

    Tips
    If you get crash on swith language - just reset keyboard's settings.

    SM-P905F0 Only!!!
    In small update - ril and some files from the latest SM-P905F0 firmware.
    Install main firmware and then fix from the link below. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-6nm7Jks0W5Z1EtSFZzWHdJczA/view?usp=sharing

    Important
    Tip from LegendSmoker:
    After booting up in settings wizard, Be sure uncheck diagnostic data
    If you already checked it, Settings - General management - Report diagnostic info - off then reboot
    It can help, if you have gsm issues.

    OK I wanted to add this to hopefully help someone out. Most of my problems were from losing imei and after hours of going through several types of recoveries for hours I finally found the right mix of TWRP and the Partitions back up and restore app on Google play I finally got it back. I then tried an experiment and downloaded GAPPS and installed it. Then I installed the Google phone app made it my default and the Google Contacts app. I also use Evolve SMS but Messenger for Android is probably good too. My only major problems right now are the Camera Valera is working on auto rotation Valera is working on but I use ultimate rotation control and just tap the rotation I want in notifications with the persistent notification and speakerphone does not work if you press it so don't and open camera isn't a good solution for me BC I keep pressing front facing camera and it gets stuck so I use a better camera pro from amazon actually free apps it doesn't work there either but at least it doesn't get permanently stuck and I can just press the button and switch back.. Great work Valera so far and I look forward to the kinks getting ironed out. I really love the access to the Samsung universe I had built up on and theme store still won't let me sign in. I read on the note 3 thread where this ROM originated most stock apps can be fixed if you switch them to system apps I only tried this on gallery in version 2 so I don't know how well this works.

    Losing imei? I only had once this - on the galaxy alpha.
    All my experiments with all firmwares on p905 (I can flash firmware for check 10-20 times in a day in last 1.5 years) - I never losing imei on p905 (of course I have twrp backup just in case).

    Last version 3 - 20170305 has problems with mobile, if you need mobile - better use version 2: 20170218 in this case. @LegendSmoker report me this problem yesterday, unfortunately it was later to fix, hope today will update.

    Right now we have several problems:
    1. phone in latest version. check - today-tomorrow
    2. build.prop: ro.build.characteristics=phone vs tablet
    This is port from phone, i.e. framework work fine only for phone mode and in verical. In our case should be ro.build.characteristics=tablet, keyboard looks great, it take all width, it has arrows, but it's crashing in settings, some applications crashing too. Now I'm working on replace keyboard, my files and etc apps from tab s2 with native landscape. check - this weekend
    3. rotation - I think need repack apps. check - this weekend, may be next week
    4. camera - right now we have workaround like "open camera", but of course later I'll back to camera, I think I'll move camera from another tablet with 6.0.1 - like tab s2. check - this weekend, may be next week

    Later I'll try make fully port from the tablet (tab a with s-pen SM-P555 should be ideal firmware for our device). I want get clean firmware without any tweeks and additional, like we get a official firmware.

    P.s. I'm using cm\lineage last few years, official 5.0.2 was not good (cm 12.1-13.0 was much more smooth and faster - this is my point of view). And I never thought about port 6.0.1. But at the end of December I started think about make MIUI. :) I was back to this idea several times, try to build it, but no luck. I was not gave up, later I'll back to this. ;)
    But after it I started work on this port - I was sure - it will be just for fun for few days. But it's was look great and worked smooth, so now I spending all my time to clean-up and fixes (I did not even start playing in the horizon zero dawn ;) ). And now my top priority is the fix all problems and get fully working port.
    3
    Here is my flashable zip wich contains some mods for this Rom:

    Lockscreen fixed in landscape
    Theme Store fixed in landscape
    Games Launcher fixed in landscape
    And Rom Control.
    3
    ....but, as far as I can see...there arrows on the keyboard are gone (again) ;)

    This is because now we back to phone keyboard. I'll try to update layout on next week.
    2
    there is a problem with the front camera ( selphie ) keeps telling me ( mediasaver failed, camera need to restart )
    tried third-party apps with no luck. even instagram, messenger ....etc no app is able to open the front camera. the rear one is ok
    any fix for the problem plz. the ROM is perfect but this problem is a deal breaker since i use the tab for video chats

    Sorry, yesterday all day worked with multi boot for our tablets.
    Only at night I returned to the port. Now libs for front camera updated. I'm Checking microphone during calls right now and then will put new version. Will be today a bit later.
